President’s Corner by Pat Halpin-Murphy
To say Dr. Edith Mitchell, our 2015 Potamkin Prize Winner, is accomplished would be an understatement. She’s an oncologist, a clinical professor, a researcher, a triple-negative breast cancer expert, a Brigadier General, a mother, a wife and a humanitarian. The list goes on from there. Dr. Mitchell currently works with breast cancer patients and students at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital’s Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center and serves as President of the National Medical Association.
The Vivian and Meyer P. Potamkin Foundation Prize for Breast Cancer Research is an annual award presented to an individual who is performing outstanding or groundbreaking work in the field of breast cancer research. It is someone who demonstrates vision and commitment to providing the best possible treatment and outcome for patients, and leadership in the breast cancer community. Dr. Mitchell embodies that commitment, making breakthroughs in triple-negative breast cancer research and treatment while caring for patients every day. Her work has made a direct impact on the women served by the PA Breast Cancer Coalition, and throughout the world. Congratulations, Dr. Mitchell!
